The victor of the last two grand slams, Djokovic has been unstoppable in recent months and crushed Zverev 6-2 6-1 to set up a final meeting with either Roger Federer or Borna Coric.

"Like I said, I think I will try to take a decision on the clay towards maybe before - well let's say while I'm on vacation after London (ATP Finals November 11-18)". An increasingly exasperated Zverev issued more punishment to his racquet at 3-1 down, earning a code violation and tossing the battered piece into the crowd. Djoković, who was solid on serve the whole match, did not give Ćorić any other openings to break back in the set and get back into the match apart.
